Dutch mom Laura writes how husband and young daughters loved their fabulous Sri Lanka family holiday


The Globetotting.com website is all about how to get the best out of foreign holidays with young children—and this latest post focuses on the joys of Sri Lanka!

Dutch travel writer Laura Weenink, who spent 16 days here with her husband and two daughters, was entranced.

She writes: “If you like variety, diversity, action adventure, beach and culture, Sri Lanka is your thing.”

“One minute you’ll be feeling the sand between your toes, the next you’ll be dancing in the rain forest, or standing face to face with an elephant.

“When choosing a family holiday destination we prefer nature and wildlife to big cities and we love learning about different religions and people. We got all this and more in Sri Lanka.

“In fact, in Sri Lanka families are welcomed as VIP’s and the locals’ love children. We found the atmosphere to be very relaxed wherever we went.”


Since the holiday was mostly about the children, she notes that both loved climbing Sigiriya Lion Rock fortress, while “the hill country of Nuwara Eliya, often referred to as ‘Little England’, was one of our kids’ favourites stops”.

Meanwhile, “one of the highlights of our trip was definitely Udawalawe National Park”.

“Both girls were huge fans of Master Campers, a luxury safari camp located just a three minute drive from the entrance to the reserve.”
